Physics is a fundamental science with the objective of quantitatively comprehending nature and describing it by means of universal laws. Physical findings have shaped our scientific view of the world. At the same time, they are the basis for technical advancement of our society.
Apart from a mathematical-physical aptitude, the preconditions of the programme include an interest in science, curiosity, and the ability to study and work independently. Mathematics – Why? What? What for? Who? How? Where? Further information? You will find answers to these questions here.
Physicists work in internationally networked research groups.
The language of modern science is English and spoken by all members of faculty. Nevertheless, all course are taught in German and sufficient language skills are required.
However, students should not only show an interest in findings and application, but also in physical methodology, as the significance of methodology in physics is comparable to that of the actual findings. Physicists can be employed in different professional fields not least because the interaction of theory and experiment first developed in physics set an example for many other scientific disciplines.
